A Beautiful and Fresh Backyard Citrus Table with Sur la Table

Spring has sprung and this table has us as ready as ever!! I was so excited when I found this gorgeous citrus-inspired collection at Sur La Table just in time for the new season. The citrus with that pretty pink background is so gorgeous, you guys will flip when you see it!

I added gorgeous florals, a few fun details, and a delicious spread of food to complete the perfect intimate table for four in my backyard. Keep scrolling to see all the pretty and see where to shop it all and create it on your own!

I couldn’t resist having a few pretty details for this little dinner party, and these were worth it! How pretty is this invite by Proper Letter? Styled to perfection by Jessica on my new Stile and Co mat. I am in LOVE with this!!! There’s something about these colors that just make me smile!

The bougainvillea is blooming in my backyard so I thought this photo was necessary! How pretty does our table look? And our garden is so green! All the essentials of Spring from Mother Nature to help make our set up even prettier…

Who knew that orange and pink could be the best color combo EVER?! I loved layering the print on our table with the Sur La Table table runner, dinner plate, salad plate, napkin, and even that adorable bread plate! It’s just the prettiest table situation!!

For the glassware, I kept it simple and classic with a wine glass, champagne, and water glass which I may or may not have used for a cocktail, haha!! I’m also loving that new gold flatware, isn’t it pretty?

When I saw these florals by Not Just in Novels I nearly fainted! These poppies blew my mind, they were SO big and SO beautiful! And those colors are just gorgeous. These were just incredible!

Not Just in Novels also created this beautiful installation over my table. It is so fun to play with florals and do something different and unexpected. Especially something as unique as this!

Place cards are always a great detail for any party, and it’s always fun to try a different and unique take on it. Sur La Table has these adorable mini citruses that I used as place cards. Proper Letter sent me vinyl names that I put on them and they couldn’t have been more perfect!

Love this gorgeous table!!

They even have bowls that are the perfect addition for a starter at a Spring lunch or dinner. I picture a pretty pea soup in that bowl and I may have to make that dream a reality!

As a hostess, I always know that full glasses equals happy guests! I poured a bit of rosé but also had a delicious cocktail option as well! Variety is always fun 😉

My friends at Greenleaf Chopshop have the best Easter menu that I used for this gathering. One of the best things to come out of Covid, in my humble opinion, is to go cocktails. An already mixed delicious cocktail ready to go? Yes, please!! I just poured it in that pretty pitcher and added a little bit of citrus and voila! An extra fresh drink!

Not only does Greenleaf offer the drinks, but also the most delicious food!! Their Easter menu includes colorful grilled veggies, delicious sides of potatoes, a fresh spring salad, scrumptious salmon, and a zesty lemon chicken. My family and I were in heaven with this gorgeous and yummy spread!

Don’t forget dessert! Your guests will never forget you! My friend Diana at Sugar Crush Sweets brought a little bit of everything, and it was equally pretty and yummy! Citrus tarts, cake pops, and hand painted macarons. What more could you ask for?!

I’ll take one of each!!!

When you throw a dinner party as pretty as this you deserve a drink!! From one hostess to another, make sure you enjoy every bit of the event you worked so hard for!!

Cheers to lots of pretty Spring nights just like this!!! I linked all of the amazing pieces I used for this beautiful night below!

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the prettiest way!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! As you know, we like to celebrate every holiday here at Beijos. Even the random Instagram holidays, but I think we’ve celebrated most of them over here! St. Patrick’s Day is no exception! My mom always liked doing something special for it as she’s Irish, so I want to make it special as well.

Each year we try and do something different on the blog, but I think this year is the best yet. There’s just something so pretty and classic about the shoot we are sharing today. I love how ethereal it is and I’m excited to share it with you today! Keep scrolling for a whole lot of pretty captured perfectly by Lorin Kelly Photo.

Our pretty invite is by none other than Proper Letter. She always has the prettiest handwriting and I love her simple yet classic approach to her creations. Lorin styled this one so beautifully too with a little moss and stunning linens from Party Crush Studio.

Our table is pretty darn gorgeous if I do say so myself! I was able to work with Lori from Golden Sol Floral Co. for the first time and she seriously amazed me with her talent. I love the greenery garland she created for the table and all of the pretty greens in the background.

This time I decided to use linen on the table, I don’t often do this but was drawn to that flow look for our shoot. Plus, I love that grey color that Signature Party Rentals has, isn’t it perfect? And of course, the bistro chairs from Sweet Salvage Rentals just completes it!!

For the place settings, I went simple and classic! Signature Party Rentals has such a pretty collection of tabletop items. I did clear and modern glassware with their stoneware white plates and sleek rose gold and white flatware. I think this combo is absolutely stunning!

Just top it off with a Party Crush Studio white napkin and Proper Letter’s place cards and menus then you are set!

Did you notice that our menus by Proper Letter have an Irish proverb on them? I thought it was fitting!

So darn pretty!!! I love this one so much!

Golden Sol Floral Co. also did these gorgeous arrangements that we placed on top of Sweet Salvage Rentals vintage pedestals. Such a great idea for a ceremony space at a wedding, don’t you think?

Now for some yummy food! Colette’s Catering brought these cute and delicious mini breadboards. We had them at each place setting, nothing like some bread and herb butter before dinner, don’t you think?

Individual boards are definitely a fun food trend for 2021!

I’m all about bread and butter, and so far I’m liking this version of St. Patty’s Day food!

Now for the main course! We did a really pretty food and bar set up for this one. If there’s one thing you need for sure on St. Patrick’s Day it’s good food and good drinks!

Colette’s Catering created a delicious spread, it’s not the average corned beef and cabbage for this one! Think of a delicious short rib over a parsnip puree, honey glazed carrots, chestnut soup, and a yummy spring salad! That’s what I’m talking about!!

As usual their display and presentation was as pretty as the food was yummy!

Onto the bar! Our girls over at Bottles & Blooms brought the fun with these tasty cocktails! They did the Irish Kiss and Feeling Lucky as our two cocktails. One was a beer with a fun twist to it and the other was a matcha tea cocktail. So yummy and festive!!

Loving the cute stir sticks by Proper Letter, and if you look closely you’ll notice the gold flecks on top of that cocktail. Bottles & Blooms thinks of everything!!

Moving on to our pretty lounge! First of all, I’m obsessed with that green sofa and chair from Sweet Salvage Rentals. That color is so rich and vibrant, perfect for a St. Patty’s Day celebration!!

You always need to have bites and drinks nearby!! Even in the lounge! Love this shot by Lorin Kelly Photo.

I love a lounge with levels, and Sweet Salvage Rentals is so good at that! Those copper-colored cushions on the floor are so perfect and they look so cozy to sit on!

Well friends, that’s how you do St. Patrick’s Day!! I hope you all have a fun one!! Tomorrow, on to Easter!!!
